Generally, people resort to hardcore chemical cleaners when they’re cleaning their bathroom. This is understandable, considering the icky stuff you have to deal with. These chemicals can be unpleasant and harmful, though, and there are safer, easier, and cheaper alternatives out there. These hacks may not make bathroom cleaning a joy, but they certainly will make your cleaning day a little more pleasant.
1. Scrub the Tub with a Salty Grapefruit
Scrub away bathtub grime and rust with this easy and fresh-smelling hack. Apply a liberal layer of coarse kosher salt to a half pink grapefruit. Wet your tub to make it slightly damp and then get to scrubbing. You will likely need to apply more salt as you go, and if your tub is particularly dirty, you’ll need a whole grapefruit. When you’re done scrubbing, rinse away the salty, pulpy juice and enjoy your clean and freshly scented bathtub.
